Amanda Hodgkinson is an award-winning British novelist. Her debut novel 22 Britannia Road was an international bestseller, an Amazon.com book of the year 2011, a Goodreads Choice Award Best Historical Fiction nominee and was published in over sixteen languages. Spilt Milk is her critically acclaimed second novel published in 2014. (Spilt Milk is a refracted version of real life, that impossible mess we inherit and muddle through, yet transmuted here into something shining and meaningful, told in beautiful prose. THE FINANCIAL TIMES.)
In July 2014, Berkeley (Penguin Books) will publish a novella by Amanda in Grand Central. Ten bestselling novelists have put together this collection of original stories of postwar love and reunion.

“Memories shrink. Like a soap bar used over and over, they become deformed, weaker scented, too slight and slippery to hold.”
Amanda Hodgkinson, 22 Britannia Road

“Januz feels glad to have her in his arms--his wife, who would do anything to protect their son. This is how she presents herself. Like a soldier who would kill for her country. And her country is their son.”
Amanda Hodgkinson, 22 Britannia Road

“The dress means no harm, after all. And it is new. It carries nothing inside it but the possible beginnings of her downfall.”
